Good Morning

Why standest thou afar off, O LORD?
why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble? Psalm 10:1

God is “a very present help in trouble.”
But He permits trouble to pursue us,
as though He were indifferent to its overwhelming pressure,
that we may be brought to the end of ourselves,
and let to discover the treasure of darkness
the unmeasurable gains of tribulation.
We may be sure the He who permits the suffering is with us in it.
It may be that we shall see Him only when the trial is passing;
but we must dare to believe that He never leaves the crucible.
Our eyes are holden;
and we cannot behold Him whom our soul loveth.
It is dark–
the bandages blind us so that we cannot see
the form of our High Priest;
but He is there, deeply touched.
Let us not rely on feeling,
but on faith in His unswerving fidelity;
and though we see Him not,
let us talk to Him.
Directly we begin to speak to Jesus,
as being literally present,
though His presence is veiled,
there comes an answering voice
which shows that He is in the shadow,
keeping watch upon His own.
Your Father is as near
when you journey through the dark tunnel
as when under the open heaven!
~~ Daily Devotional Commentary.

Know God is very present. . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie

Yarn Along – Continuing my Knitting Plan -Plus


On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from. They also tell what they are reading and a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts. I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

My plan for February is to work on three projects I need to finish by the end of March
I knit on at least two of them each day.

I impulsively cast on this vest because it was so cute.
